Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt - "Funky"

********************
"Won't you take me to Funky-town ..." those lyrics are sure to be stuck in my head all weekend as this week's theme for the Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt, hosted by the gracious TN Chick, is funky.

When I first saw that I drew a complete and total blank as to what might be available in my photo collection that qualified as funky. Granted, I was a teenager in the late 70's and funky was everywhere but I was also pretty conservative and bypassed the whole funky disco-era as much as possible. I can honestly say I never set foot in a single disco though I did enjoy a lot of the music (yeah, yeah, I heard that!)

So ... what to do for funky? Think, think, think ...

Leave it to Amanda to come up with the perfect idea for a funky picture. She decided just yesterday that her black boots were too boring the way they were and decorated them with some puffy paint that we had left over from another project. Add those newly decorated boots to a pair of purple fishnet tights and her baggy white shorts and what you get is ...



Funky!!

  18. GREAT boots! Love 'em.

    And I am a total "disco queen"!! LOL
    I visited many discos in my time. Absolutely loved it (and still do). Funny thing - the only music that I usually ever listen to is the oldies, especially disco tunes. My boys know all the words! LOL

    Have a great weekend. Hope you are staying cool back there in Connecticut.

  25. Yep..."funky" is the word to use here. Gotta hand it to both of you for "thinking on your feet" - no pun intended w/respect to Amanda's latest creation! Amanda, you really are going places.

    BTW: After payday, I'm looking to buy a "Death Eating A Cracker" T-shirt! Awesome stuff @ that site, Amanda!

    Now, back in my "funky period" (aka college) I would SO have worn these boots. In fact, I had a black sweater with exactly these colors in it that I could have worn them with!

    oh my gosh! Emo-kid painted her black boots???? Oh my there is hope for her yet! If she can put her purple eye shadow only on her eye lids and not around the whole eye as usual. I would say she has been abducted by aliens!
